The Daily Grind: What unusual MMO merch do you own?

The world is broken.

No, dear readers, I do not own a set of Destiny 2 candles. But they’re the most recent bit of odd merchandising and memorabilia for a game that I can think of. I do own a few Final Fantasy XIV plushies, the Final Fantasy XI mandragora plush, and the Star Wars: The Old Republic visual guide. Remember when that was a thing?

And then there are the various t-shirts that my wife has (I don’t really wear t-shirts) memorializing various games, including the shirts for defunct titles like Infinite Crisis. Oh, and that WildStar Rowsdower plush…

Of course, you need not go far afield for some of the rare, weird, and wonderful examples of MMO merch. So what about you, dear readers? What unusual MMO merch do you own? Anything that’s a treasured belonging because of – or despite – its rarity? And are there any pieces of merch that you wish you had but have never bought?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Unusual? Hrm. EVE Online shot glasses count? Well… I did own them until a previous flatmate discovered them, then proceeded to use them and break them because drunk and clumsy :,-( They came in an eve-branded paper bag. That might count in and of itself!

Otherwise, just the normal kinda thing I guess. T-Shirts, bags, mugs, pens etc.

After buying LANDMARK I went out and bought a dildo to remind myself what it felt like to get fucked by soe/gamebreak.

I tried to think of something, but appears I dont have any. Not only from MMO but from gaming overal. Im totally indifferent to such things. I dont even remember wanting to have any mechandise for my favourite games.

Warframe sent me a ninja head-band for being a founder. I appreciated – and still love – the t-shirt and excal prime etc. But the headband is just… weird.

Also, my Firefall Commander beanie is pretty great-looking, but I have zero places to wear it. I live in the northern half of fucking Australia, near the tropics. We don’t actually GET Winter, here.

I have 2 that I’m relatively proud of. First, is a First Edition Prima Guide Metal Gear Solid 2 back fold-in poster that reminds me of a movie theater poster. The other is a backer/founder Arclight Firefall landscape high-res digital painting poster from some of the original art. Both are hanging around my office as they are beautiful pieces of art.

Strictly as MMO, I have the Malog Bal statue from the ESO pre-order CE box with a fake gold gangster chain hanging around his neck. (Wore it one Halloween lol)

Nothing too out of the ordinary. Wall scrolls, posters, mouse pads, shirts, pop figures, art books, plushies, figurines, decorations, etc.

My most odd thing would probably be my Doomhammer power bank.

When you ordered TSW merch from We Love Fine you got a crumpled hand-drawn version of the map for the secret headquarters for the monster hunters — we framed it ;)

A pillow in the shape of lore from Secret World. I loves it.

HeroClix figurine from the City of Villains box set. I think it was Statesman, but I don’t have it with me at the moment.

A copy of the Warhammer Online Collector’s Edition, still in shrink wrap.

A copy of the preorder box for City of Heroes.

An opened, but fully intact Auto Assault box.
